Another pleasant day in the playbook today, with highs expected to top out in the upper 70s and low 80s. Most will veer dry, but an afternoon pop up shower or storm can't be entirely ruled out. Looking at the latest surface map, high pressure is passing through to our north. The frontal boundary that appeared to influence the area has shifted a bit further south, allowing us to stay mostly dry today and portions of tomorrow. By Friday, a passing upper level disturbance will bring the return for better showers and storms.
Looking into model guidance, things sit on track. Showers and storms will be best Friday and Friday evening, but a few isolated showers/storms will be possible this afternoon and again tomorrow. This weekend looks to quiet back down a touch with isolated to scattered showers/storms possible. An approaching cold front then brings increased activity Monday and towards mid week.
Overall, temperatures will remain below average for this time of the year. The trend looks to continue through much of the remainder of August as well, so fingers crossed this "early-fall like" feel continues. We all know Tennessee weather though, so take advantage of these conditions while we have them!
